JJ Redick signs with the Philadelphia 76ers

Wojnarowski: Redick Will Not Return to the LA Clippers

So much has changed in a matter of a few months.

The 33-year-old veteran joins a young, talented 76ers team that includes top three draft picks Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor and Markelle Fultz.

He will now start next to Fultz this fall.

Wojnarowski adds that of the three teams, the Timberwolves and Nets are the more willing parties to give Redick a multi-year contract.

The Philadelphia 76ers signed shooting guard J.J. Redick to a one-year, $23 million contract Saturday afternoon, according to ESPN.

"It's where I wanted to be", Redick told ESPN in a text message. Redick recently located to the East Coast from Los Angeles, where he spent the past four seasons with the LA Clippers. He began his National Basketball Association career with the Orlando Magic who eventually traded him to the Milwaukee Bucks in the past year of his contract.

Last season, Redick averaged 15.0 points and drilled 42.9 percent of his threes on a career-high six long-range attempts per game. Interestingly, it was down from his absurd career-high 48 percent shooting from the 2015-16 National Basketball Association season.

The Sixers' backcourt of the future appears to be set with Simmons and Fultz, but Redick is the potentially the flawless complementary player who can thrive on the court with either of them.
